UTStarcom PPC-6700 / XV-6700 / HTC Apache
Then bump up the camera pixels and I could totally justify the purchase as I wouldn't have to buy any other toys.
I would prefer to buy a package rather than pay Garmin $10/month for life to have the GPS capability. Would you have any recommendations on a permanent "one-time purchase" option?

I use this on my laptop and it works pretty good. I'm not entirely sure about the PPC setails and usage.
I use Teleypes GPS software and bluetooth reciever that I bought for 199. Works exactly like a navigation system. Several other places like TOm-TOm also have this software for this particular phone. Don't know why people are saying this isn't possible? I use it every day. Teletype also have additional software for aviation, marine, and outdoor use
I think we're making two different comments. You can use a software and connect to an external GPS receiver/antenna, but you can not load a program that will use the internal phone locator and map your location on the screen, you must also have the GPS receiver to make it work.....so its not an all-in-one piece
I"ll be receiving several of the gps-enabled direction systems over the next few weeks and will report here what I find, but it does seem to me that this thing has to have GPS if it is providing E911 servce.
You have 2 options. You wait until Sprint ports over the Garmin app, if they ever do. Or, you buy a bluetooth GPS module to throw on your dash.
Any info would be welcomed!
Man! i fiddled with the GPS crap for ever before i got it to work.
First. Global positioning does not = e911, e911 uses triangulation to sort of say you are around "this" area. but does'nt do what GPS does: pinpoint your almost exact lattitude and longitude.
my first little frustration was with my phone and the PHAROS bluetooth gps. i was using tomtom. although my friends little ipaq worked flawless, mine did not. the GPS control pannel is more explained on http://blogs.msdn.com/windowsmobile/archive/2 006/06/07/620387.aspx this site also says how to get it set up.
GOD i hate tomtom after all that, I never got it to work. so i got iGuidance. I had it working 4 minutes after i installed it. I could actually tell the program w...
I also heard of a rumored freeware app that uses google maps, and any gps module but can't find any good information on the subject.
I'd obviously prefer a BT GPS module, but I haven't seen a package software & gps module that I know works, if anyone has one they've got up and running happily please let us know where we can get it, and approximate cost?!
